James Webber Recruitment sponsors the Employer Brand category

Understanding hospitality employers and their needs is all important and JWR pride themselves on their knowledge.


JWR is sponsoring the Employer Brand category at the 2018 People Awards. Sales Director, Neil Pattison said, “We have a long and fruitful relationship with JWR and we’re so happy that they’re sponsoring this category.”

James Webber, MD of JWR said, “We have worked with since it started, our businesses have grown together and complimented each other within the market place. People Awards are hugely important to recognise individuals and companies that have achieved great success through their pioneering work and have helped in moving the industry forward.”

JWR was founded in 1999, specialising in hospitality recruitment across all sectors of the industry. They opened their first office in Salisbury, followed by Birmingham, London and Exeter over a period of 15 years.

“JWR has always focused on long term business which can only be achieved by understanding your clients and candidate needs and desires,” said James Webber. “We employ the very best consultants to ensure clients are getting knowledgeable professionals that give confidence and deliver on all assignments.”

JWR provide permanent recruitment for hotels; restaurants; bars; private clubs; leisure; contract caterers, conference venues, recruiting all levels across all departments.

Understanding hospitality employers and their needs is all important and JWR pride themselves on their knowledge. “This is an industry that focuses on passion, enjoyment, and positive experiences,” James said. “To achieve this, companies and their teams need to go beyond the expectations of the customer.”

For employers long term, James Webber feels that Brexit will have a huge impact with less individuals to choose from, stretching an already candidate led market further. He said, “There are opportunities to counteract this by promoting hospitality as an industry in which to have a fantastic career. People Awards highlight initiatives that prove hospitality employers are on the right track.”
